Thread: Tiger eye rod blanks?

  1. Default Re: Tiger eye rod blanks?

    That first picture is Bubinga and birch bark with a moose antler winding check. My finish on all of those types of handles is Tru-oil. Depending on how many coats and how you rub it out you can get anywhere from a high gloss to satin finish. I also core out all my wood grips to reduce weight.

    here is a whitetail burr,burl cork and bubinga grip finished in tru-oil


    here is another antler zebrawood combo finished with tru-oil

    If you are talking about the blanks earlier in the thread I gave Dave's phone and web site and strongly recommend calling him. You can also go to DanCraft and schneider's but you will pay a bit more. If you are talking the grips i build all my own grips for customers.

    The blanks look exactly the same as the St Croix imperial balnks........

    Huhhh? The St Croix Imperial rods I've seen are solid color brown, a very pretty brown, but brown non the less. The Tiger Eye blanks are like the tiger eye jewelry, mixes of amber, dark brown, gold. Beautiful full depth of a range of the colors.

    I don't know if this is the appropriate place to discuss this, but, needing help, I would try explain my problem. I ordered from Sevier a two piece 7/8 blank and charged my credit card $50.50. Since it has been almost three weeks, I emailed Dave twice and tried calling his number several times. I received no answer to any of my efforts. Am I missing something or is this normal?

    Sometimes there are delays. Calling is a good idea, especially during the day since he's a small business doing it himself. I've gotten nervous sometimes but he's come through and I love the blanks. He doesn't send a shipping confirmation email so might just show up one day. Try calling again to see if you can get a hold of him in a couple days. If it comes, let us know.

    For whatever it is worth, I paid $50.00 or so for an 8 wt blank. I called several times and emailed -- no reply. I got tired of waiting and ignored so I built the rod with TFO blanks. $50.00 loss is not the end of the world but folks should know my experience.
